Come Dine With Me star sent secret signals by bosses to wind up contestants

A Come Dine With Me contestant has revealed that the bosses of the show sent him secret signals to wind up other contestants in his time on the cooking show.

The winner explained that the bosses told him to keep cracking his knuckles under the table to rattle the other cooks.

The Channel 4 show gives five contestants the chance to take home a 1 thousand pound cash prize by hosting the perfect dinner party.

On the taxi drive home the contestants rate each others hosting skills out of ten.

The contestant explained this on Reddit: "It [the taxi] takes you back to the house after you've filmed in the back doing the score, then you get another separate taxi home."

He also explained that the producers make them do things to wind up the other contestants.

"Particular parts are a bit staged", they wrote.

"I crack my knuckles a lot, and at one point, I was tapped on the shoulder as part of a code to crack them so they could get the other's look of disgust on camera."

However, this former contestant also took the time to debunk theories that had been swirling around the Internet about the program.

This included one rumour according to which the Come Dine With Me producer often sabotaged contestants' cooking.

"Personally, no interfering needed to happen with mine, I f***** it up all by myself haha", they penned.

"Although, personally no interfering happened with the other guest's food, and theirs was delicious."

One curious viewer then asked: "I heard that with all the filming and interviews that the food is usually cold by the time you get to eat it. Any truth to this?"

The former winner responded: "Yes, this actually holds an element of truth."

"You have to work with their schedule and on one occasion it meant someone's food was a bit cold when served."

"They just apologised and we had to score fairly, based on the fact it wasn't the dinner host's fault."

Some of these revelations may be act as confirmation of Katy Spence's experience in Come Dine With Me.

Katy Spence, who appeared on the Channel 4 hit show in 2014 spoke on TikTok: "During my week, one of the people absolutely should have won, their food was the best.

"But, it's hugely edited, massively staged – and they know who they want to win right from the get go."
